Lee Daniel‘s Push** won enough respect and rave notices at the Sundance Film Festival to be on everyone’s must-see list when it eventually arrives in theatres. Well and good. But I was unaware until today of the other Push (Summit, 2.6.09) — a seemingly low-rent sci-fi actioner.

The website for this Paul McGuigan-directed programmer tells me it’s not likely to be loved or remembered for very long. But I wonder which Push decided on its title first. It’s just weird for two of them to punch through (McGuigan’s is screening for the press in early February) in the space of a couple of weeks.

** The full title of Daniel’s film is Push: Based on the Novel by Sapphire.
